Steel City Pops Is Coming to SA this Summer

Posted By on Mon, Apr 3, 2017 at 6:00 AM

We'll have another way to cool down this summer as the Alabama-based Steel City Pops makes its San Antonio debut this June.

The shop, at 812 S. Alamo St., will occupy approximately 3,600 square feet of production, office and dining space, and will also feature a covered patio. Steel City Pops is a privately owned popsicle company opened its first location in Homewood, Alabama in 2012. Since them owner Jim Watkins and co. have expanded across Alabama, Tennessee and now Texas with 22 total stores in the forecast by the end of the year.

Steel City (Birmingham is known as the Pittsburgh of the South) is known for its small-batch organic popsicles ($3), that can be dredged, dipped or drizzled for an extra $1.50. It'll join El Paraiso, Paleteria San Antonio, SA Pops, Pop'topia Pops in providing popsicles to a hot San Antonio when it opens.

The Southtown location will handle production, led by general manager Ben Cleveland, for smaller, satellite locations across San Antonio and mobile carts available for catering and major events.

812 S. Alamo St., (210) 963-6540.
